{ First trip to Southern Utah }

I have lived in Utah for more than seven years and I have never been down to Southern Utah (home of Zion's National Park, Arches, Moab, etc) -- lame, I know. So, when my friend Suzanne invited me to go down for a day trip, there was no way I was missing out. We visited goblin valley (as you may recognize from the movie Galaxy Quest) and also did the Little Wild Horse/Bell Canyon hike -- an 8 mile loop that takes you through a slotted canyon. I think it was a nice little treat of a trip, and I'm looking forward to more.

We did a little bit of free climbing and took this shot at the top of one of the formations we climbed.

Me and Missy hiked up pretty far. I forgot how much I love rock scrambling and climbing.


I think this shot came out sweet.
